Mr. Swann, of Tenn., reported from the Military Committee a bill to provide for placing persons in the military service of the Confederacy claiming to be citizens of the United States.

The House took up the unfinished business of Saturday, being the bill to provide for placing in the military service persons claiming to be citizens of the United States. The question was upon the passage of the substitute of Mr. Chilton, requiring all persons between the ages of 18 and 45 who may be resident in the Confederate States after the 1st day of February next, to be subject to enrollment in the military service of the Confederate States, regardless of any claim of non-residence or alienage which they may set up; but leaving it discretionary with the President, upon considerations of equity and justice, or of public necessity, to exempt such persons.

port of State Governments in all their rights, as the most competent administrations for our domestic concerns, and the surest bulwark against anti-republican tendencies, the preservation of the General Government in its whole constitutional vigor, as the sheet anchor of our peace at home and safety abroad."

The Schleswig Holstein War. From our Northern files of the 20th, we have some fuller particulars of the commencement of hostilities between the Austrians and Prussians on the one side, and the Danes on the other. On the 31st of January, Field Marshal Wrangel, the commander of the Austria-Prussian forces summoned Gen. de Meza, the Danish Commander-in-Chief, to evacuate Schleswig, the territory in dispute. The reply of de Meza was, that he had orders to defend Schleswig. On the 1st of February the Germans crossed the Elder, when Marshal Wrangel issued a proclamation assuring the people of Schleswig that the allied forces had come to protect their rights, and that the civil commissioners of Austria and Prussia would assume the administration of the duchies of Schleswig and Holstein. In conclusion the proclamation advised the inhabitants to abstain from any party agitation, which would not be suffered by the Commander-in-Chief, in the interest of the Schleswigers themselves.
cksburg; another Western Tennessee, down the Mobile and Ohio railroad; and the third was to land at Pascagoula There three columns were to unite at some point, capture Mobile, then Montgomery, and occupy all of Mississippi, and that portion of the State of Alabama, west of the Alabama river. To accomplish this grand object, Sherman was given 70,000 veteran troops. The expedition so largely planned was in angulated by the moving of the two first columns. Sherman left Vicksburg the 1st of February, at the head of thirty five thousand infantry, two or three thousand cavalry, and from sixty to eighty pieces of artillery. Almost simultaneously Grierson or Smith began their march through North Mississippi with twelve or fifteen thousand cavalry and mounted infantry. Mobile, at the same time, was threatened by water with the enemy's fleet of gunboats, and by land from Pensacola and Pascagoula. The question naturally arose with those anxious about the fate of this section what was
mes A. Powell — and unlawfully assaulting and beating Frederick, slave of Martha J. Stamper, in the First Market.

Graves and George Graves, and wounding, at the same time, Gilbert Wootton, a free negro. The accused, Jim, is said to be one of a party of negroes who committed the above murders at "Jamestown," the former residence of Major Allan, soon after the Yankees took possession of that place. The Mayor postponed an investigation of the case till the 1st of February. One or two other cases, of trivial import, concluded the proceedings for the day.
Revenue laws. --It will be remembered that, at the regular session of the Legislature last winter, they passed a law suspending the revenue laws for one year. The time for which they were suspended expired on yesterday, and to-day the old law of 1863 is in force over the State. All persons desiring to commence business now, instead of the charge of one dollar for a license, will have to pay the old rates — we believe the proportion of one hundred and fifty dollars per year. As the property of tax-payers is supposed to be taken on the 1st of February, or, as all the property which one has on that day is taxed, it will be well for persons to cast up their taxable estate, so that when the Commissioner of the Revenue comes round (which he will now shortly do), they may have no difficulty in giving him a list at once.
